On April 13, Keidanren USA hosted a breakfast meet & greet event with Congressman Mark Takai (D-Hawaii). Congressman Takai emphasized his close relationship with Japanese companies dating back to his days in the Hawaii state legislature. Member companies outlined their business presences and operations in Hawaii, and issues such as clean energy, transportation infrastructure, and defense interoperability were also discussed.
Sadly, Congressman Takai passed away on July 20,2016. Keidanren USA expresses our deepest condolences.
